RE in Year 4

Feb 16, 2023Religious Education

Year 4 have enjoyed learning about Judaism and the food laws (kashrut) that Jews follow. We couldn’t believe the different foods that are kosher and treif (allowed and not allowed) and how this could impact a Jewish person’s life, for example going to a birthday party at McDonalds. In addition, we have looked at the celebration of Passover and how the Seder plate’s foods symbolises different parts of the story such as the tears of the Israelites. We have discovered during this unit how Jewish people following kashrut are showing respect to their God.
